Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Many avenues are open to Biological Science majors who want to earn credit for undergraduate research during their career at UVM. Students can pursue research opportunities in laboratories in any affiliated College or Program within UVM. Biologically-related research experiences may earn Biological Science students up to six credits that can be applied toward their major requirement. Discuss these opportunities with your academic advisor, and follow the links below for more information.

UVM's Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) is a resource for students at every step of the research process. This office's role is to advise students on the process of finding faculty to work with, as well as how to contact these faculty members. They also have funding opportunities for research expenses, as well as grants for summer support, so students can spend the summer doing research and receive a $4,000 stipend. Lastly, OUR offers travel grants with which students can attend a conference and present their research! For more information on any of OUR’s resources and services:
